I have the opportunity to buy the following new Springfield Armory scope for $540 delivered.

4-14x56 A/O, 30mm, Target Knobs, 3rd Generation Illuminated Government .308 Reticle

I would use it on a Springfield Armory M1A or on an FN Special Police Rifle.

What do you think?

Please respond in detail.
Thank you,
Regards,
FRIZ

FRIZ, what's up!!!

how was Thunder Ranch?
when you get a chance type up a review.

as far as the gen III
it sounds like a good price. you will be hapy with the scope and if your not springfield will fix it.

be sure when you get it to "shoot a 10" box" and shoot groups at minimum and maximum powers to check your zero. i have a gen ii and a gen iii. they are both great scopes but if you have about 1200.00 i would say go with a Night Force. they are the same size but have better light transmission.

There was a discussion a few weeks ago where several people chimmed in, you might want to take a look at it : www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?id=112143

FWIW, $540 is a good price. I paid about the same for a reconditioned one from SWFA.

Good price... I have the same scope. My knob for the reticle became loose and almost fell off after about 40 rounds (over about a year) SA repaired it and sent it back to me. They did a poor job of boresighting it after they repaired it but otherwise it is a good scope. The 56mm lens is huge (almost too cumbersome sometimes) but I like it.

I have the scope that you are talking about mounted on my Reminton 700 PSS. I have really enjoyed using it. I purchased mine for $660 from SWFA about 3 years ago. I have taken about 7 deer in the last 3 years with it. All of the deer have been inside of 350 yards, so I haven't really had the opportunity to utilize the range finding recticle much.
